Glenn Beck has defended Megyn Kelly from Donald Trump before, but the GOP frontrunner’s latest attacks on the Fox News anchor seem to have pissed off Beck even more.
He said he’s getting sick and tired of Trump attacking her like this and declared, “Leave Megyn Kelly ALONE.”
Beck again affirmed he won’t be voting for a candidate “so thin skinned that he must belittle, abuse and threaten women,” and he thinks Trump just needs to grow up and accept the fact that journalists ask tough questions.
And in talking about Trump’s verbal abuse, Beck even invoked actual domestic abuse:
You see, Don, I know who you are because I have seen your type before.
Verbal abuse is just as bad as physical abuse. But men like those who abused the women in my family were smarter, like you, than the man who used to beat my mother.
Words, most think, don’t leave marks.
But maybe you don’t care, because you deliver your beatings in broad daylight and in full view, daring us to stop you.
We don’t because our country is sick.
Beck posed this question to Trump:
“Mr. Trump, what would you do if someone obsessively stalked your daughter on Twitter for months after a minor disagreement as you have had with Megyn?”
And he even guessed that maybe Trump was abused when he was young:
No one will say it, and you certainly won’t admit it, but my guess is, you were deeply hurt or abused when you were young.
It explains your entire act.
It is as if you stopped maturing in the 8th grade. You are a 14 year old boy trapped in a 70 year old body.
I don’t know what your pain is. But it is okay Donald. No one can hurt you anymore and you need to see that in your effort of trying not to be hurt you have become the abuser.
Beck predicted that he would receive more “vile and hateful lies” from Trump supporters, and there are some comments on Beck’s post that are clearly more favorable to
